THIS LITTLE GIRL IS AMAZING!!!

April is National Poetry Month and since I have not posted anything for it there is no better way to get this started than to post Peh’Tehn Raighn-Kem, age 3,  reciting “Hey Black Child” by Countee Cullen on Windy City Live. This little girl is simply amazing!!!  Watch as she marches up to the microphone…

Via ABC 7 Chicago reports:

Peh’Tehn Raighn-Kem, 3, is big inspiration in a tiny package as she performs the poem “Hey Black Child” by Countee Cullen on Windy City Live.

Peh’Tehn’s parents, Lashaun and Andrea Jackson, are both educators who live in Bronzeville. Peh’Tehn can already write, and has been reading since she was 18 months old.

A video of Peh’Tehn performing “Hey Black Child” at her church has spread rapidly on Facebook, and Wednesday morning she appeared on Windy City Live with her parents to perform the poem again.
